Re: New engine - Andscacs.

Congratulations on creating a working engine! Just a couple of suggestions which will make it easier to use and test. Firstly, it does not run for me on Win7 but it does work on Vista. You could try building it without needing any MSVCP100.dll or other libs. Next, it does use a lot of "extra" CPU t...

Re: New engine - Andscacs.

Hi! I'm Daniel José. First sorry if my English is not good enough :-). I made a new UCI engine called Andscacs (from Andorra, a little country between Spain and France), and Escacs, the catalan word for chess.
